SpotX, the leading global video advertising and monetization platform, announced the availability of its latest Prebid adapter video header bidding solution. Prebid, the open source header bidding solution, will allow publishers using SpotX’s adapter to implement header bidding without commitment to any one supply-side platform or the use of proprietary wrappers.

Allen Dove, Chief Technology Officer at SpotX, has also been selected to join Prebid.org’s Board alongside existing members including engineering and product leaders from OpenX, Pubmatic, Rubicon Project, and Xandr. As the leader in video advertising, SpotX was named a Prebid.org member at the Leader Level.
“SpotX is excited to make our adapter available and continue to work with the growing Prebid community as a member of its Board,” said Dove. “Our joint solution will allow us to optimize our header bidder offering for our clients with high-speed auctions and enhanced user experience.”
